    Question Want to color white sponsons red...

    My '96 SLX780 originally came with red sponsons, but I nailed a buoy in '97, and the stock replacements were white. While they don't look bad, I really want to make them red again so the ski looks 100% stock...what do you guys suggest? Should I dye them or paint them? If paint, what type do I use?

    If you paint, I'd recommend krylon fusion.

    We were just painting the plastics on zomgvtek's ski today with it. bonds well, but youll prob have to hit them with some 220 grit first. Cant tell you how good/long it hold up yet though.
